There are two basic parts to the cost of a car loan the principal and the interest. The principal is the negotiated cost of the vehicle itself. The interest refers to the total amount of the costs accrued over the life of the loan based on the principal amount and the stated interest rate.
It is important to note that fixed costs are not always the same. Like the price of anything, they can change - sometimes unpredictably and sometimes on a regular schedule, but they do so based on some other factor, not the level of production. For example, if a lease contract is being renegotiated and a $10,000 per month lease payment is increased to $10,500 per month, fixed costs have risen, but not because of production levels.

A financial measure defined as revenues less cost of goods sold and selling, general, and administrative expenses. In other words, operating and nonoperating profit before the deduction of interest and income taxes.
